This Jacob Boehme's famous work on the symbolism of the biblical Genesis, the first book of Moses. The author explains many names, places and themes found in Genesis: Two Principles - God's Love, and Anger; Darkness and Light; the Essence of Corporalit (the seventh form of nature). Luna (Moon) and Saturnus; the Creation of Angels; the Fall of Lucifer; Six Days' Works of the Creation; Adam, Eve;Of the Impression and Original of the Bestial Man; Cain and Abel; the Covenant; Enoch; Noah and his sons, etc.
There are many themes in common with the theosophical neo-platonic tradition of Ammonius Saccas, Plotinus, Porphyry, Iamblichus and Proclus, as well as with the Kabbalistic tradition. Hierarchies, the emanation (generation) of Cosmos, angelic kingdoms, trinities, signatura, ideation, duality, transformation can all be found with Boehme, as with the other traditions. Keep in mind that Jacob Boehme uses a very veiled style of writing. He had to do that, in order to survive the narrow-minded world of the fundamentalist Christians, at war with each other at that time. He certainly acknowledged the idea of the Christ potency within the human being (indeed, the New Testament refers to this too), a transformation and realization possible for those oriented to the right way of life.
